  1. I am very sorry for your loss. Eddy will be missed very much by his co-workers at Western Dairy Transport. He always told us jokes and made us laugh! He was very kind. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. I worked with Eddy at Western Dairy Transport. He was an amazing man! He would always make us laugh & would brighten our day! I am so very sorry for your loss.

  3. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. The Bible gives us a comforting hope for our loved ones that have passed away in Acts 24:15 and John 5:28,29. The Bible also gives us a beautiful promise for our future at Revelation 21:3-5 when Jehovah God does away with all the causes of our suffering including, pain, mourning and death. I hope these scriptures can bring the family some comfort during this time.
